I'm not able to reproduce the bug with your test case ...

Subject: [Linux-ia64] IA64 strncpy in 2.2.4-30 - bug and patch

I opened a bug with RedHat about a problem with strncpy() in glibc-2.2.4-30 on IA64, see, but I've been told you folks are really the ones to talk to.
The bug report contains a testcase illustrating the problem, and also a patch.  In short, the recovery code is busted, even after the patch from David Mosberger.  Attached is a copy of the patch from the bug report.
I have a testcase which exercizes both the recovery3 and recovery4 paths if you're interested.
